help come from? >> it could come from europe and even closer. a senior defense official tells me now that defense secretary leon panetta has assured americans that the u.s. military will take all necessary and proper steps to deal with this attack. what could that mean? most importantly, the pentagon's africa command has what is called a commander and extremist force. it's a small, very lethal force that is dedicated to hostage rescue and counterterrorism. they are at an undisclosed location but we're told they are on a very, very short window to be put into action. now, expanding out just a little bit, take a look at the map, look at where algeria is. look at where this oil facility is. you can take a look in italy, the u.s. has air bases in italy which they could use a cargo lift, they could also use surveillance plates from there and they also have about 150 marines that are trained in crisis intervention in italy and also as we move over to rota, spain, there are two marine corps anti-terrorism bases there. further out, if necessary, back here on the east coast, all u.s. special

request was accepted and now i'm told by defense officials that military planners are in deep discussion with the french to go over specifically what they are going to bring in and where they are going to bring it. one defense official that i spoke with said that it could be the equivalent of the entire mek mek cannized battalion and might take up to 30 flights to get all of that in there for the french. in the end rkt the french would reinvert the u.s. for the cost of those cargo flights. there was a separate request for some u.s. surveillance as well as refueling and u.s. planes could pull up to the french jets, refuel them in the air, that's another request that's still under consideration but that part has not been decided, wolf. >> that's stepping up the military role in mali. that's a significant is headline. let me bring tom fuentes back in. are you surprised that france is helping deal with this crisis in mali? >> i'm not surprised to not let the al qaeda affiliates in mali and other countries become more powerful, to gain a foothold in those countries. we're under a l

still very dangerous. >> we heard from the secretary of defense leon panetta today saying -- >> this is the problem right now for the united states and other countries, al qaeda in north africa, perhaps the new frontier for al qaeda cells and affiliates, but many of these places are very remote areas, very difficult to get to, and the case is, we are seeing in algeria, that government does not want outside military help. it's one thing for the secretary of defense to say there's no sanctuary, that the u.s. will go after these al qaeda terrorists, how are you going to get over there with limited force and how are you going to get to these countries to undertake military operations is a whole other question. this is likely to be a very serious ongoing issue now for some time to come. >>> now this, a new report out today by the cdc says that the flu season is now getting worse. 48 states are now reporting widespread flu activity. now widespread means more than half of the counties in a state have flu activity. 30 states are reporting high levels of the flu, up from 24 last week. hospitaliz
